We all know how important your online image is these days – no company is going to hire, or even interview you, without doing a Google search on your name. And of course you search on your own name on a regular basis, to see what’s out there about you and make sure the first hits are professional places you are proud to be associated with.
I’ve often suggested people go even further – create a web site for yourself, put the URL on your resume and in your sig file, and include your complete publication list, details on major accomplishments, and so on. This lets you show off all your major accomplishments, much more than will fit on a standard 2 page resume.
But what if you can’t afford to put together a whole web site, or don’t know how to? CareerSolvers has a great tip on how to turn your LinkedIn profile into supplemental information.
